k-town?  :-\

I just don't want to deal with traffic.

K-town is not horrible, I don't know if it's the closest place though still...

hey fidiv, did you get an e-mail saying you were part of a select group being reconsidered before you got off the loyola waitlist today?  congrats by the way.

Yep.  I got that email on Friday of last week and promptly responded that I was still very interested and wouldn't hesitate to accept an offer.  I hadn't heard anything from them, and I was curious so I gave Jannell a call today to inquire about my file and she confirmed over the phone that they had offered me admission.  (coincidentally, I came home today to a nice big fat white envelope)  Not sure if it means that the initial email went out to everyone they were already considering admitting, but good luck.

I got that e-mail on Tuesday, I'm still waiting...

I got that Email too!!  My heart was pounding as I opened the email hoping and praying that it would be an admissions offer!  Much to my disappointment, it wasn't.  But good news I guess.  I too was making plans of going up north to visit San Francisco and possibly Santa Clara, but Loyola has always been and still is my first choice. Good luck to you!

I'm not the only one wallowing in anxiety!!

Well I found out it's you first choice you are being reviewed for, very small group supposedly, and we should know very soon.

Good Luck!

I hope so, although nothing is for sure until they tell me so...

It's crazy because I made a ton of plans to go up north since I thought I had no chance of getting off the WL at Loyola.

I just hope it's not the PT too.

About being reconsidered and being in a select group being reconsidered and asking about your continued interest??

They got me all excited even though I had just about given up on them.

20 or 30 bucks? where?! i saw it for80 i think on

Look at Ebay.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: How much use will my laptop get?

I'm definitely going to invest in a nice laptop. But what I'm wondering is whether to get/build a desktop for entertainment purposes (when I do get the time). This way, I won't have any videos, games or music clog up my notebook and also decrease incidences of crap being installed on my notebook. Any suggestions?

That's what I'm doing.

Laptops aren't meant for entertainment/gaming although they are marketing them that way now.  It's a TON cheaper to use a desktop for that, and I think desktops also hold up longer than laptops (probably means more when you are maxing it out on gaming too), so I think the extra desktop for those is a great idea.

#1. First call your school, they will tell you if it's required or not.

#2. It seems as if it's pretty damn necessary, both for notes and for test-taking especially.

#3. Law School will probably be costing you quite a bit of money, maybe even up to $50k for the first year, the price of a laptop is small considering this.

Price is not really an issue for me, I have a lot of $$$ from where I am going to LS. The issue is more that I am used to taking notes in class, not typing them, and although I'm not great at shorthand, I'm better at writing real fast than typing real fast.

I bought the computer and I know I will use it for tests, I wonder just how much I will actually use it in class though. I tried taking notes on my laptop once in college and I hated it.  :-\

Well then it's not required for class, I've definately heard of people still writing out notes, but I think it's worth it to have with all the computer needs you will have, tests, papers requiring typing and research needing computers/online sites.
